(I'm just going to apologize right now for the bad photos. I have no natural light in my kitchen and I made this late in the evening)
Garlic Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo
- 1lb fettuccine noodles
- 3 cups heavy cream
- 2 cloves of chopped garlic
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 12 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 2 cups grated parmesan
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
- Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
- Salt and pepper
Start by cooking the pasta in a large pot of boiling and salted water until tender. It took me about 12 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Chop your garlic into small pieces. Don't worry about being perfect, they can be rough and uneven pieces.
Meanwhile, add your butter to a LARGE skillet. I used the largest skillet I had and it was still overflowing so go big! Over low heat, melt the butter and then add your garlic.
Let the garlic and butter simmer until the garlic turns slightly brown.
Stir 2 1/2 cups of the cream and the lemon juice. Increase to medium heat and cook for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Toss the pasta mixture over low heat until the sauce thickens slightly, about 1 minute. Since I was using pre-made chicken strips I added that in at the end. I steamed some brocoli and baked some garlic bread to serve with. It was delicious!
